Femvertising is a movement of ideological change within advertising and marketing, but at the same time it is a strategy. It is defined by changing advertising messages about women by eliminating gender stereotypes, objectification, or imposition of beauty ideals to give way to the true voice and images of women.
Companies that implement femvertising as part of their communication must have a real commitment, both in their internal and external processes. For it is not a strategy that seeks to appear to connect with the female public, but a position in favor of the eradication of female sexualization and gender violence.
Brands that join the femvertising must remove messages or images that denigrate, violate, objectify women, or promote beauty idealizations. And from the inside they must exercise equal pay and provide equal opportunities for growth to all people regardless of gender.
This change, which marks a before and after within mass communication, is driven by the presence of women within the industry. They have brought their voice and that of real women to advertising and marketing. For example, in Spain, the Association of Consulting Companies in Public Relations and Communication states that more than 72% of positions in advertising and communication agencies are occupied by women. In Mexico there are still no data on this, but those of us in the communications industry are most women. In addition, communication-related careers are dominated by female students in universities.
